The latest Governmental shenanigans have had me itching to launch my electoral campaign sooner rather than later. But, since it is my first time contesting the general election, I’ve been wrecking my brains on how to go about this. It is a very new experience for me and the options are endless.
Then it came to me – what better way than to launch my campaign as close to the people as possible, by keeping up my face to face meetings with the electorate and spreading the word on social media.
Like this I can reach many of you; I can “listen” to you by reading your comments and answering any questions you may have. And I can do it cost-effectively.
Some of you may know me, and some of you may not, so here are some facts about me:
➤I am 37 years old and a mum to a 13 month-old boy. I love being a mum but I must admit I do find it really hard especially when I am constantly trying to fit in everything I need to and want to do.
➤I am a dual qualified lawyer – Malta and the UK and I specialise in employment law. I have a great passion for the law. I advocate healthy industrial relations.
➤In 2009, I set up a law firm in the UK and sold it after 3 years and moved to Malta, however I still do some work in England.
➤I love life and love having a good laugh.
➤My saddest day was when I lost my dad to cancer – 6 years on, I still miss him like crazy. Let us keep fighting against cancer.
➤My father, Edward, owned the smallest shop in Sliema (cigarette shop on the strand).
➤My happiest day was when I found out I was pregnant – who would have thought! I like to call my son my little miracle.
➤My biggest weakness is that I tend to worry a lot (not sure this is a good thing in politics!).
➤My best strength is that I am very hard working and give whatever I do my very best.
➤I love to travel and I have been to many beautiful places. I still have a long list of countries I want to visit.
➤And here’s why I decided to get into politics:
When I first announced this decision quite a few told me that I was losing my mind but I felt that there was no point in me sitting at home complaining about the situation, when I could get up and do my bit. I have always been involved in lobby groups, so politics was, to an extent, my next step – the step I needed to make, to hopefully bring change and with my little contribution make Malta and Gozo better. Some say I am a dreamer, but if one does not go into politics dreaming about a better future, and then trying to implement it, there is no reason to get into politics at all.
➤I am contesting on the 9th District – Gharghur, Msida, San Gwann, Kappara, , Swieqi, Ibrag, Madliena, Ta’ Xbiex and the 10th district Gzira, Pembroke, St. Julians, Paceville, St. Julians, Sliema.
I would love to have your support and would love to hear from you!
